Why can't I remember all thes back stories that are cropping up? confused

I haven't got a clue what Jenny did on Corrie.

And I can't remember a thing about Stacey's brother on 'Enders. Including his name for the moment. hmm

jingle I stopped watching soaps a few years ago, but over the last few months I have stated watching Emmerdale and Eastenders and I am totally bamboozled by the past story lines. Don't watch Corrie.

Sean. Bit of a nutter, had a fling with Roxy - then again who didn't.

Jenny was fostered by Rita when she was younger, conned her out of a lot of money and disappeared for a few years.

Then she came back, got involved with Kevin and kidnapped his son Jack - cue dramatic scene on balcony of flat when she threatened to jump off with him (turned out she'd lost her own son).

As for Eastenders, I haven't watched it since the awful baby-swap thing...

jingl I feel exactly the same and I only watch Coronation Street.

Jenny is the daughter of Alan Bradley who tried to kill Rita and famously died under a Blackpool Tram.

I watch Corrie and Emmerdale. I can't stand Eastenders - maybe it's because I'm a northerner wink.

I find it's good brain exercise to try and remember past events when they suddenly become relevant - much more interesting than Sudoku!

I'd forgotten all about Sean until he popped up again a couple of episodes ago. If someone had shown me his photo I could have said he was in 'Enders but not which character.
The only other soap I watch is Doctors

Oh yes! I remember the Jenny thing now. Remember the balcony scene. Thanks Ana.

Still can't remember much about the Sean story. I get him muddled up with Stacey's brother. Wonder when they will bring him back. grin

Just a thought ninathenana, are you getting Ryan (Whitney's brother and Dad to Lilly) mixed up with Sean (Stacey's brother)? Sean hasn't been around for years but I would like to see him back.

Grandma2213 I like Corrie because I am biologically half Northern. [proud]

jinglbellsfrocks Sat 30-Jan-16 09:30:57

Oh yes! It's Ryan who's just been in it! Sean is still to be re-introduced. confused Totally!!!

Alima Sat 30-Jan-16 09:31:42

Jingl, Sean IS Stacey's brother. Oh dear!

ninathenana Sat 30-Jan-16 11:05:21

Doh ! Silly me Alima yes I meant Ryan

PRINTMISS Sat 30-Jan-16 11:19:45

Isn't Ryan Whitneys brother?

ninathenana Sat 30-Jan-16 12:28:28

Yes PRINTMISS it was me that caused the confused by getting Sean and Ryan's names muddled.

This thread confirms my intention to avoid all soaps ?
